While a Board Member of Prime Health
and a Senior Advisor to 10.10.10, health-tech entrepreneur Mike
Biselli witnessed firsthand the tremendous power that a determined
community of clinicians, technologists, and investors could wield,
and realized just how much more could be accomplished if that power
were harnessed. Over the next few years, Mike began developing the
industry integrator concept, an entirely new feature of the
innovation economy that would allow the healthcare industry to be
integrated at the point of innovation by housing an entire
health-tech ecosystem in a single location. Now, in partnership
with governmental, academic, non-profit, and commercial
organizations, Mike Biselli is developing Catalyst HTI, a
first-of-its-kind industry integrator in Denver’s River North
District (RiNo) that will bring together health-tech startups and
Fortune 20s alike in the race to fix American
